RENR 427 - Science Policy and Canada's North
The purpose of this course is to expose students to key themes in science policy in the Canadian North, and to prepare students for careers at the northern science-policy interface. Case studies from the Canadian North will be used to explore the main themes of the course. Topics will include the basic elements of the policy-making process and how science contributes to policy making; the process by which scientific knowledge is generated and the role science and technology plays in society; and the two elements of science policy: science for policy, and policy for science.
Registration restricted to students in B.Sc. in Environmental and Conservation Sciences program. Non-B.Sc. ENCS students interested in taking RENR 427 should contact the ENCS Program Advisor, Dr. Katie Aitken, at firstname.lastname@example.org, for registration information.
